Georgia O'Keeffe: A Life

'“The best book ever written on O’Keeffe . . . An invaluable resource.” —Calvin Tomkins, The New Yorker   “A profoundly human treatment of O’Keeffe and all the people who figured prominently in her life.” —Los Angeles Times   “Chockablock with intriguing detail, some apt insight, and best of all, O’Keeffe’s own voice . . . The first sensible discussion of how photography influenced O’Keeffe’s painting—her closeups, wide angles, cropping, distortion of scale, and zooms.” —Ms. magazine   “Robinson’s detailed, sensitive critique of O’Keeffe’s work alternates with an absorbing, intimate narrative of O’Keeffe’s personal life (including her notorious relationship with Juan Hamilton, six decades her junior, and the public battle over her estate) to provide a resourceful, imaginatively rendered portrait of a dauntingly difficult subject.” —Publishers Weekly  “The most comprehensive O’Keeffe biography to date, this essentially feminist reading convincingly builds its case from a wealth of sources . . . to explain less the woman-behind-the-myth than how and why the woman herself became myth-maker.” —Kirkus Reviews  '
